About us

Art of engineering on the highest level for the benefit of our clients and society – this is our mission

WBI (Wittke Beratende Ingenieure) was founded in 1980 by Prof. Dr. Ing. Dr. Ing. E.h. Walter Wittke in Aachen as a spin-off from the RWTH (Technical University) Aachen. Since then, WBI has developed into a global, independent boutique engineering company headquartered in Weinheim, Germany, with subsidiaries in Aachen/Germany, Guadalajara/México, Santiago de Chile and Lima, Perú. We are specialized in civil, structural, geotechnical and rock mechanical engineering for Tunnels & Underground structures, Mining, Dams & Hydropower, Slopes & Embankments, Deep Construction & Foundations. Based on our expertise in both Geotechnical and Structural Engineering as well as their interaction, on our proprietary programs for numerical analysis and on our long-term focus on applied science, we engineer global infrastructure projects in smarter, better, safer, more economical, and more sustainable ways.
